“The art collection of George Michael reflects the friendships built between one of the U.K.’s most acclaimed musical artists and the visual artists who were creating artworks at a seminal moment in British cultural history,” Michael’s trustees said in a statement.
“Philanthropic work was hugely important for George during his lifetime and it was his wish that this work would continue after his passing.”
